Track Name: To Water
My lids slip down my cheeks
I breathe you in like steam
I reach for the hem, hem of your sleeve
Well if ever I dream, I dream of you

Shaky on my feet
The waves splinter beneath
And there's not, not much between
Well if ever I dream, I dream of you

And I know it's wrong
But once you were gone
I put my lips to the bottle you'd been drinking from
And if ever I dream, I dream of you

I look to the blackened sky, and then
I'm inside of the leviathan

And if ever I dream, I dream of you
And if ever I dream, I dream of you
And if ever I dream, I dream of you
And if ever I dream, I dream of you

And I chased ya
I caught ya
But my spine turned
To water
To water
To water
Track Name: Asylum
Down in the asylum and the bodies are piling
Down in the asylum and the bodies are piling
Drinking doesn't fix it and crying does no good
Drinking doesn't fix it and crying does no good

In a pit, on a spit
Ripped to strips, on a cliff
I just about slipped

Down in the asylum and the bodies are piling
Down in the asylum and the bodies are piling

There's no way known
to take the blow
And keep the flesh still on your bones
I just about slipped

Down in the asylum and the bodies are piling
Down in the asylum and the bodies are piling

Beg me to let you in, but I won't
You drip in bits off my window
I wish I had slipped

Down in the asylum and the bodies are piling
Down in the asylum and the bodies are piling
Drinking doesn't fix it and crying does no good
Drinking doesn't fix it and crying does no good
Track Name: Puppet
My tongue tangs with blood
My head hangs, I can't
Understand what went wrong
And no comfort ever comes

Now I'm a puppet with a hand up it
Not a muscle opts to stop it
A puppet with a hand up it
Picked up this habit, I can't drop it

And crying, but what of it?
They dry before they hit
And the seams of my skin split
And I dry before I hit

Now I'm a puppet with a hand up it
Not a muscle opts to stop it
A puppet with a hand up it
Picked up this habit, I can't drop it

My tongue tangs with blood
My head hangs, I can't
Understand what you've done
And no comfort ever comes

You never asked, I never said
And whatever happened
Now you reckon I'm the biggest drunk you ever met
Well you never asked, but I guess you guessed
Track Name: Aliens, Not God
Each night I long
For aliens, not god
To set things right
To set things right

Each night I long
For aliens, not god
To set things right
To set things right

There's a place to store
The junk on the shore
But it's my fault for
Being born where I was born
How did I get that wrong?
How did I get that wrong?

Salt in my sores,
I'm torn, and re-torn
Well, how long, how long?
How long, how long?

Shirt's off now
He says bet you wish you'd drowned
I try, but can't swallow
I try, but can't swallow

I see what's happening
I'm limp; I'm jelly-limbed
I'm fucking marshmallow
I'm fucking marshmallow

So low, I am down
So low, I am down
Where the worms all go
Where the worms all go

And each night I long
For aliens, not god
To set things right
To set things right
And each night I long
For aliens, not god
To set things right
To set things right

When you collect
Your son, at least, what's left
Up in a plastic bag
Tell me again, I will listen then
How you get things right
How you get things right
How you get things right
How you get things right

And each night I long
For aliens, not god
To set things right
To set things right
And each night I long
For aliens, not god
To set things right
To set things right
And each night I long
For aliens, not god
To set things right
To set things right
And each night I long
For aliens, not god
To set things right
To set things right

To set things right
To set things right
To set things right
To set things right
